One thing I can never have enough of is lipstick. I have a whole drawer of the stuff, in every shade you could imagine. I usually stick to ‘drug store’ lipsticks, but every now and then it’s nice to try out a higher end product. One brand I’ve never really tried anything from, but have heard great things about their lipsticks, is Yves Saint Laurent.


I was recently given the chance to try out one of their Volupte Sheer Candy Lipsticks, and I picked the shade No. 3, which is a sheer baby pink colour. The lipsticks are a range of lipsticks in sheer bright colours, that also work as a lip balm, leaving your lips smooth with a hint of colour. In the tube the lipstick looks quite pink, but once applied to my lips you can tell how sheer it really is. The colour hardly shows up, it just gives the impression of my lips but glossier. As I’m not the type of person who wears bright lipsticks on a daily basis, this works perfectly for me as an everyday lipstick, and I’ve found myself reaching for this most mornings to wear to work.  I know not everyone is a huge fan of sheer lipsticks, but for me this is great for me for work, as I don’t really want to wear a super bright colour.


I was always put off the price of high end lipsticks in the past, especially as this one is £25, but I really think the quality is worth it, and especially for how often I wear it. So far I’m really impressed with the Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy Lipstick, and I’ve already got my eyes on getting some more YSL lipsticks… Do you have any? What are your favourites?
